'Ivan Locke' has a seemingly idyllic life both at home and at work, the climax of his career should
take place in the morning, however a phone call received turns his world upside down, he just has
to respond.
He's on the way to be with 'Beth' who he'd had a one-night stand with, she's about to give birth to
his child.
He really should be at home watching the match, and be in work early the following morning to
receive delivery of a massive consignment of concrete for the construction of what he considers
his project, however he's on the way to London.
He has to try and explain things to his wife and his work colleagues , his decisions could cost him
everything.
He is upsetting and concerning many people as he answers call after call on the road, his life is
beginning to unravel whilst driving.
Just when it can't get any worse, it does, over and over again.
There are many possible outcomes to the several different issues he's trying to deal with on the
road to London.
This is a very different style of movie, not sure i've ever seen it's equivalent down the years....this
is primarily a one-man show, plenty of different voices on the other end of the phone however.
The film is pretty compelling viewing, an intense journey indeed.
Certainly worth viewing.

It's wrong to call it a thriller, hence all the poor reviews from disappointed people who expected blood, guts, guns and fast action.
For me this is one of the best films ever. If you have any interest in family life, belief in principles, job dedication, and yet also in how we are prey to a mistake, this film is for you. Don't expect a cast of thousands, do expect a superb principal actor and a fascinating interaction between him and the rest of the characters whom we only hear yet never see.
If at the end of it you reflect on the nature of human frailty, and the difficulty of having enough compassion to be able to forgive, and somehow between the two things still striving to do the right thing; AND not wanting an ending with everything done and dusted - then this is your film.

I saw this British gem of a film at my local multiplex cinema and I was completely taken in by it. It was one of the best British films I'd seen in a very long time. It had pretty much everything, drama, suspense, and terrific acting by Tom Hardy I thought.

It tells of Ivan Locke, who's happily married with two sons, who leaves work in Birmingham on his way home or so we're led to believe. He's on his way to a hospital in London and be there for the birth of his baby he had with another woman. He wants to "do the right thing" and be there at the birth of his baby. With plenty of calls on his Bluetooth hands free kit, with names of his family, work colleagues and the other woman, coming up on the screen, it all makes for a gripping and frenetic 80 minutes. He also speaks to his dead father as though he was there in the car with him.

All the action takes place in and around the car of Ivan Locke. Very strange some might say. May be. But it kept this viewer gripped right on through to the end. My eyes never left the screen for a single moment. It's one of the best films I've seen so far this year at least. It's a brilliant idea and in all honesty, the film works on so many levels. It's dramatic, emotional, and completely absorbing to this reviewer anyway. I would recommend it definitely.

This was absolutely not what I expected. I had read no reviews so started with an open mind. It consists of one man, in a car, answering the telephone, and making phone calls. There are no other visual actors in the film. Given that outline, it is easy why so many people have given this one star, but what for me raises this above the farcical are a couple of things., The moral of the tale, one mans quest to do the right thing, and try to make everything okay, has you hanging on every word. The other thing, is Tom Hardys performance, which I thought was outstanding. Atotally different type of movie, and one in a strange way I enjoyed.

I had my doubts, one man in a car and no one else featuring visually in the film at all? Sounds dull.. But no, this has a great script and Tom Hardy already has the accolade of starring in one of my favourite films ever (The Drop) so all should be fine. Ivan Locke's Welsh voice is calm and measured throughout, as his unraveling life is fed out to those closest to him via a series of phone calls as he travels on the motorway at night. Dickon Hinchcliffe provides a hauntingly beautiful soundtrack (available on Fiction) which adds to the melancholy. I see headlines describing this a a "tense thriller" etc etc - utter utter nonsense to try and drag doubters in to the cinema. It's actually a gentle, very personal film about a man trying to put right his mistakes. Don't hesitate to see this.

Who would have thought that a man driving from Cardiff to London for 90 minutes would hold you totally enthralled? Well Tom Hardy does in this devastating drama. Brilliant. Should be on the must see list of everyone who loves great acting.
